For something so ubiquitous, creating your own website can still be really scary. Get some help taking your first steps with WebEasy Professional.

WebEasy is a very complete program that is ideal for the user taking their first steps in the exciting world of website creation. Almost everyone seems to have a website these days, but a lack of know-how can put people off. With WebEasy Professional, however, you really need very little to start creating, as the program is packed with tutorials and wizards that will do much of the work for you.

WebEasy Pro works by asking you to choose the basics and creating a website for you. It then provides the template so you can modify and preview your new website as many times as necessary until you are happy with the result. The whole process is really intuitive, and you can modify almost everything by either dragging and dropping or double-clicking. WebEasy Professional also comes with a huge selection of pre-loaded images, animations, sounds and layouts, so you don't even need any of your own material in order to begin. Of course, it goes without saying that you can use your own multimedia instead.

When it comes to publishing your finished site, you'll either have to arrange your own hosting service or use the one recommended by Web Easy Pro. Although there is a wizard for this process, it is not as easy to do as some other tasks and could do with better explanation. WebEasy Professional has a lot of configuration options, but most users won't really be interested in them until they gain a little more confidence with the basics.

On the flip side, advanced users will probably appreciate the options, but not the somewhat amateur-looking websites that are created by the program. Although a little bit of careful modification will go a long way to producing a pretty and functional site, there is a whiff of home-made about the whole process that some will find off-putting.

WebEasy Pro is a gentle introduction to the world of website creation.

WebEasy supports the following formats

ALB, WEB, TPL, HTML
